Mary


#1

Can someone tell me the requirements for salvation, as taught in the CC?


#2

Well, that’s not the question I expected under the subject heading “Mary”.

Short answer: be baptized and die in a state of grace. For most people, these two events will be some time apart, during which we fall from grace by sinning. So we get back into a state of grace through prayer, worship and developing our relationship with God, frequent use of the sacraments, practicing works of mercy, and through the prayerful intercession of the saints, the holy souls, and others on Earth. Persevere in these until death.

NewPerspective is trying to stir up a debate about Catholics’ believing in the role of Mary in the Church and the necessity of that belief for salvation.


#4

Well, not a good try then.

and Mary says to all of us “Do whatever He tells you”. :wink:
